Race in the Postsecondary Classroom

About to go speak at an exciting conference plenary for the Canadian Association for Cultural Studies.

Following on the hashtagged acts by scholars–such as the #fergusonsyllabus–in the wake of racial violence and as part of growing social movements such as Idle No More and Black Lives Matter, we wanted to explore race in the postsecondary classroom within the particularities of the Canadian context. Join us on Jan. 15, 2016 at 1:45pm (Balsillie School of International Affairs) for Beyond the Hashtag: Race in the Postsecondary Classroom.

Examining issues such as the affective work of teaching about race, the pedagogical approaches that can contain such teaching, and strategies of provocation or accommodation (to name only a few), we will be joined by: Naila Keleta-Mae, Sara Matthews, Eve Haque, and Darren Thomas.
